Hybrid molecular electrodes, based on a conducting polymer matrix containing a dispersion of an electroactive inorganic component, are reported. The phosphomolydate anion, [PMo12O40]3⊖, is dispersed in polypyrrole to investigate cooperative phenomena between the components. The interactions are shown to influence the magnetic, electrical, photochemical and electrochemical properties of these composite materials.
